5 – 9 November 2014 | New York

Held in the Park Avenue Armory, organized by the IFPDA Foundation, established to foster connoisseurship for a new generation of collectors, curators and specialists. For more information see their website. Very instructive is their manual for print collectors on the FAQ page: how to buy, how to research, how to value and how to care for prints. Unfortunately, not much old Dutch & Flemish and mainly modern and contemporary.

3 – 9 November 2014 | New York

This annual event has an interesting program of exhibitions in museums in New York (a.o. the Met., the Morgan, MoMA and the International Print Centre), as well as the IFPDA Print Fair. “This lively schedule of lectures, exhibitions, demonstrations, gallery talks, and openings is focused on printmaking and its vitality as an artistic practice. Print Week enables collectors, artists, scholars, educators, and the public to connect with IFPDA member galleries, museums, and non-profit organizations to discover new projects, enrich their knowledge of fine prints, and expand or begin their own collections.” (IFPDA website)

4 – 11 July 2014 | London

Private collectors and museum curators who still have some energy (and funds) left during the first or second week of July come to London for the galleries and the auction sales at Christie’s, Sotheby’s and Bonhams. There are special receptions and lectures. Temperatures are usually on their height and for those preferring a pint of London’s Pride or Guinness over champagne there are several great pubs in the Bond Street-King Street area. During the sales – which usually take some time and patience – water is distributed for free (one has to keep a clear head during the bidding).

23 – 26 April 2014 | London

This annual event, the longest-running art fair in the British capital, takes place at the Royal Academy of Arts.
